Gilberte Aubie, 74, of Moncton, passed away peacefully at the Dr. Georges-L. Dumont University Hospital on Saturday, March 3, 2018. She was the daughter of the late Onésime Gionet and Agnes (Pitre) Clavette.
Raised in Atholville by her parents Ernest and Agnes Clavette, Gilberte met and married her husband of 52 years, Henry (Dukie) Aubie in Campbellton and together they raised four beautiful children. Gilberte was a woman of many talents including knitting, quilting, crocheting, gardening, sewing, baking, canning, painting and oh, those meat pies!
Gilberte enjoyed sharing the bounty of those talents with everyone; family, friends, neighbors and anyone in need. So many quilts were made, so many baked and canned goods, hot meals prepared and bandaids too! Hundreds of hats, mittens and socks were knitted and crocheted; many of which were given to local charities or donated to hospitals in both Moncton and Campbellton.
Gilberte will be sadly missed by her children, Emily Tait (Troy), Duke Aubie (Jennifer), April Binder (Kirk), Dean Aubie and Doreen Verkely (Phil); her grandchildren, Sarah, Samantha, Cody, Kiana, Penny, Aidan and Kennedy and her great grandchildren, Hunter, Arabellah and Deacon. Sister, Carmen Gionet (Henry); and brothers, Ralph Gionet (Marjorie), Leo Gionet and Guy Gionet (Theresa), and many others who knew and loved her.
In addition to her parents, she was predeceased by her husband, Henry (Dukie) Aubie, sisters, Rolande Beaupré and Donia Gionet and brothers, Roland and Valmont Gionet.
The family would like to thank the many staff of the Dr. Georges-L. Dumont University Hospital for their excellent care - with special thanks to Doris Ann.
